Iâ€™m sure all of you know of Candy Land. Candy Land is game determined completely by chance that helps children learn and recognize colors as well as learn the difference between helpful rainbow slides and that torturous Jolly Gum Drop card that would always hit you on the final run. I myself am most familiar with the 1985 version. I think this was the first version to feature Queen Frostine.
I had a mini-crush on Queen Frostine, but really? Who didnâ€™t! Not only was she holding a magical wand which could probably turn vegetables into candy, but she also had the Queen Frostine card, which, if chosen in the first few moments of the game could all but guarantee victory. She was cute too.
2002 saw a major downfall in the Candy Land saga. Queen Frostine went from seductive and magical to bubbly and fake. But the worst is yet to come! In 2005, Candy Land came out with a new edition that doesnâ€™t even feature queen frostine.
Now itâ€™s Princess Frostine. And sheâ€™s got gray hair and an unnaturally arched back.
I am genuinely disappointed with these so called improvements. Even Lord Licorice, who used to be vile and evil, is toned down. Letâ€™s get our act in gear Hasbro! 2006 better bring Queen Frostine back with a vengeance.
